Consider the following lenses in crafting your response to the paper:

What methodologies were employed in the discussed experiments? How did researchers operationalize

theoretical concepts within these experiments? What changes, if any, were included in subsequent

experiments and for what purpose? In what cases would these findings hold true? In what cases could

these findings be critiqued? What would you suggest for follow up research? What was your general

response to the research? In what ways are these studies applicable in ‘the real world’?
